aid for hurricane sandy relief. what did christie focus on the most in this address? >> in his address yesterday, he talked about the storm that reshaped the jersey shoreline and underscored the delayed response in federal funding when compared to other disasters. >> we as a state have waited 72 days, seven times longer than the victims of hurricane katrina waited. and one thing i hope everyone in america now clearly understands, new jersey, both republicans and democrats, will never stand silent when our citizens are being short-changed. we have stood with the citizens of florida and alabama, mississippi and louisiana, iowa and vermont, california and missouri, in their times of need. now i trust they will stand with us. >> he also said washington could learn a thing or two from new jersey about the art of compromise. >> now, we've had our fights. and we have stuck to our principles. but we have established a governing model for america that shows that even with heartfelt beliefs, bipartisan compromise is possible. achievement is the result. and progress for our people is the payoff.
leadership in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. no doubt about it, he stood up to his party for their actions and how they didn't do what they were supposed to do early on to get relief from congress. but now is the time for real leadership, passing the buck on to the entertainment industry, governor, is nothing but a cop-out. it's a great way to divert attention from a politically delicate situation and difficult position. >> i don't let games like call of duty in my house for ps3 and xbox. that's a decision mary pat and i have made. you cannot tell me sitting in the basement for hours playing call of duty and killing people over and over and over again does not desensitize that child to the real life effects of violence. >> i don't disagree with governor christy. parenting, it's a responsibility. parents have to parent. but there is no legislation to keep a kid from playing video games in this country. christie wants to, if he wants to be in the big leagues when it comes to politics, this is the issue. he should look to his counterpart across the river in new york as an example. >> forget t

of hurricane sandy. and if we can go ahead and look at this fairly dickinson poll. the governor christie approval, dem crams, 62%. what you see numbers like that what does that say to you, michael? >> it makes me smile. that means he's resonating with the braoad specter of voters in the state. and that's what a good political leader does and christie is very effective that way. i think he's very smart to put off are you going to be the savior of the republican party nonsense. christie represents a new generation of leaders who are going to begin to emerge to step on the national stage through the work they're doing. governor jindal, suzanne martinez are just small examples of this emerging generation. and what's important here is for the party to listen to these guys. to follow their lead and understand and appreciate that a northeast republican is not the same as a southwest republican or southern republican. these guys bring skills and talents to the table that resonate across the board. agents the beginning of some baby steps that the party needs to make. >> here's where we get to the
'm assuming that you've been doubly impacted because you grew up just five minutes, ten minutes from sandy hook elementary school. so you know that area very well. you know the school. >> yeah. i know people who worked in that school. and who passed away. and so this -- i mean, this issue is obviously of great importance to me personally. i think it affects us all equally. whether we're personally shot or we know people who have been shot and effected by gun violence. if one person dies, we all have a problem. >> julian, mass murders tend to grab the headlines as you know. but we've been tracking the daily gun violence in this country. and just in the last 24 hours two women killed in front of a senior home in tamarac, florida. in chicago one man killed another seriously wounded outside a store. in dallas a marriage with a history of violence came to an end when a man shot and killed his wife we've seen increased public pressure in recent weeks, but can we hope to see that extend to real action? >> i think we can. and that is the $64,000 question here. as you have pointed out, not just the
to step up is there. i mean, our phones have been ringing off the hook now for a month after the sandy hook shooting, and it's been incredible the amount of new people that want to engage in this. we're really hopeful and really look forward to tomorrow's meeting with the vice president. >> you've become an activist as a result of this life transforming event, the shooting that you were injured, and were also featured in a documentary that you made about virginia tech. what has changed since the 32 -- it's called "living for 32." of course, the 32 people who died there. what has changed in terms of security, do you think, on campuses like virginia tech? >> i think campus security has made a lot of great improvements as to physically on campus and to how to alert students and faculty as to what's going on campus. unfortunately, we haven't seen that same progress through our gun policy. still 40% of all gun sales in this country go unchecked. i mean, that's just unacceptable. that's just bad public policy. the american people are learning that that's actually the case. i mean, i think mo
, this is a campaign ad. >> 20 heartbroken families lost a child in the sandy hook school shooting. i know how much it hurts. my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? to every mother, we cannot wait. we have to demand a plan. go to demandaplan.org and add your name. >> mayors against illegal guns action fund is responsible for the content in this advertising, which have to demand a plan, concrete action. that message today from the mother of the youngest victim of the tucson mass shooting, which was two years ago today. this is kind of an amazing detail about this. that ad was scheduled to air today in tucson at precisely 10:10 local time, to coincide exactly with the exact time that the shooter in that incident opened fire two years ago. this is serious political pressure. this is not just about raising awareness or something, or seeking donations for groups that will work on this in a generic way. this is about using awareness and concern that
which was allowed to go away, you couldn't have had the clips that that young man took into the sandy hook school. it would not have been possible. that's a common-sense example. close all loopholes. every gun purchase has to have the same rigor attached to it regardless of where it occurs in our country. those are two things that would make a gigantic difference in the amount of violence that's taking place in our urban environments and yes, under these circumstances where somebody goes in and shoots up a movie theater or shoots up a school. let's take the steps that make the most sense today. i had a great conversation yesterday with vice president biden. and i know he is preparing his recommendations to the president. and i don't want to get into the details of the discussion, but he's got this down pretty well. he understands what we need to do to make it less likely that these things are going to happen in our cities and towns and these mass murders could be limited at least going into the future if some common-sense things are taken. the magazine thing is very big. >> wes. >> an
